Some of the state's best young farmers are in town this week, for the 84th annual Future Farmers of America state convention.
"FFA has totally, definitely changed my life," said Kelli Neuman, vice president of the Texas FFA."
An estimated 13 thousand people are attending the convention at the American Bank Center this week. Students, parents, teachers and other guests have come from all over the state. There will be competitions, and the election of officers. The organization will give out more than $2 million in scholarships in the next few days.
"We'll have a little over 800 of the 1019 chapters represented in our conference here to talk about delegate issues in order to improve our state, and more importantly, forward the message of agriculture education," said Payton Gilbert, president of the Texas FFA.
The convention will wrap up this Friday.
